While "sheltering-in-place" in response to the Covid-19 Pandemic has been devastating for many, it has also provided a chance to consider what we want to do with our lives. It's time to do the things we never had time for. No matter what your story is, I hope you will let me help you raise your profile.
You have something important to say. In a world of constant distraction, how do you get people to listen? It's all about telling a story that will resonate, motivate, and become part of human consciousness. Heller PR & Media will create a personal road map, driven by experience and enthusiasm, and fueled with a newsworthy campaign that has only one destination: YOUR GOALS.
With more than 20 years of experience in brand and platform development, publicity, and television production behind her, Phyllis Heller creates campaigns that engage and keep the public interested. Her strategies have created bestsellers and helped authors become the go-to experts in their field. From raising public awareness of race and gender discrimination in the classroom to changing our understanding of how the brain works, Heller PR & Media continue to design campaigns that aim to improve the way we treat our world, ourselves and each other.
I have had the great pleasure of working with individuals whose contributions will never be forgotten, from authors like Mitch Albom and Paolo Coehlo, to scientists like Jeffrey Schwartz, Lawrence Krauss, and Russell Barkley, to thought leaders like Temple Grandin, William Damon, and Dr. Freeman Hrabowski. If you are ready to embark on your journey, I'm driving. So fasten your seatbelt and contact me. I promise a fun and worthwhile ride.
We help you reach the world to share your knowledge, your opinion, and your passion.

"I have known and worked with Phyllis Heller for over twenty years. As my publicist, she has helped bring my books to life, and with unceasing creativity, intelligence, and fortitude, she has put my books on the map both to the general public and to corners of the world I never would have dreamed of. She is also a pleasure to work with, with a wonderful sense of humor and terrific connections, and I have her to thank for the growing success of my most recent book, The Gender Creative Child. Know that if you work with Phyllis Heller, you can breathe easy, because you are in excellent hands."

" I know Phyllis Heller from both sides of the divide: as a journalist receiving her book pitches; as an author promoting a book. Phyllis has tremendous energy, excellent media contacts and creative ideas that push word of a new book out into the world. (From the receiving end, I can promise you she’s relentless!) A devoted and tireless advocate, Phyllis is also a hell of a lot of fun to work with—no small matter for a nervous author. I recommend her wholeheartedly."
